Animated Put on your Easter bonnett! by Daphnesecretgarden Animated Put on your Easter bonnett! by Daphnesecretgarden
I just spent a couple of hours playing with my animation program and here's what I came up with. My friend Dave remarked that he could picture the boys outside jumping up and down, so I figured why not give it a shot. They came out all right, but I really like our little hero's anxiety action.

I don't know that I'll make a habit of doing animation. It is certainly fun, but it takes so much time and I'm not that good at it. Still, I'm glad to know how it works and I think my little efforts show the cuteness that I've always tried to go for.

Enjoy!

I would imagine  quite a lot of Quality time for Darrell.  I am not sure if I should feel sorry for him or happy for him.

You can feel both.  It's okay.  You didn't put him in that situation, :tears::please: but you may certainly enjoy watching.  ;)

Wow, it's kinda hard to find a silver lining for him in this one. Er ... I guess he won't have to worry about getting an injury on the baseball diamond since this upcoming summer since its pretty obvious he'll never be picked for a team!

Unless you count sitting with the ladies and getting teased all afternoon a good thing. :tighthug::spank::tighthug:

Love stepmother's facial expression as she savors Darrell's humiliating public unmanning.

Sissy boy, sissy boy! I would have loved to be a sissy boy. I didn't discover my sissy nature until I was in my early 50's. So much time wasted trying to me masculine.

Ohh you animated it! Lovely :) I love your animations :) They're done so perfectly to suit your art, never overbearing <3

You don't think it's too much? I had to try and see if I could make it work. I love how my little fellow is so anxious and nervous. Stepmom's giggling is cute, too. I'd like to do more, but it takes so much time, I'm afraid it's impossible. :slow:

Thank you for the kind words. :hug:

Just the thought of real boys outside waiting to get their hands on a sissy like me makes me shudder...

Holy crap, I can't believe you spent a couple hours animating this just based on what I said. This is as lame as I imagined it would look, and I mean that in a good way. Those kids are so dorky.

Sorry if that sounded kind of rude. When I say "lame," I mean it's funny. I guess "derpy" might be a better term than "dorky" now that I think about it. It's pretty common for background figures to be of lower quality than those in the foreground, but those guys just caused me particular amusement because they're so different from the kid and his stepmom, plus their movements bring to mind puppets made of paper cutouts glued to popsicle sticks, which is what I was picturing when the image was static.

Dave, dude, you're cool. Geez, you're awful sensitive for a guy who pulls a lame April Fool's Day stunt. :slow:

I'm with you on the kids in the background. All I wanted was something back there to give context to Darrell's plight. I'm horrible about backgrounds and stuff for my pieces ... it takes me so long just to do the main figure(s). Darrell's buddies were an after thought ... I thought your idea was brilliant and I had to try it. Oddly enough, I like Darrell's tearful anxiety even more, though. :eyepopping:

Well, I didn't think I'd offended you, but I just wanted to make sure I was clear about what I was meant. Sometimes I don't know when to shut up.

Yeah, me, too. It's all good, my friend. If I was offended I'm come out and say it. Frankly, I'm glad you said what you did. You pushed me to do a really cool animation and you didn't even know it. How cool is that? :woohoo:

Daphne: I disagree with your statement about your talent. You have a remarkable talented gift. As far as your statement about time, well, i know how hard that is to come by. Luv what you've done here.

I like the added animation, it really adds to the story :)
Perhaps you could have added Darri's stepmother slightly pulling his hand along.
All in all, great work.

Thank you very much. If I had my way I'd have stepmom doing a LOT more. :flirty: I just don't have enough time or talent to make that happen. :slow:

Practice makes perfect, but if you don't feel comfortable with animation. There's always sequences or comics!
